Yes it is. But:

lintian spits out:
W: texinfo: binary-without-manpage texi2pdf
W: texinfo: possible-bashism-in-maintainer-script postinst:3 '[ "$1" = "configure" -a '
E: texinfo: old-fsf-address-in-copyright-file
W: info: possible-bashism-in-maintainer-script postinst:3 '[ "$1" = "configure" -o '
E: info: old-fsf-address-in-copyright-file

What the hell is this stupid old-fsf-address-in-copyright-file error. I
have to change this. Manpage I will do later. But what is with the
bashism?! Do you accept it like this? Or should I prepare a new 0.1.

And: Did we come to the conclusion that I write myself as teh new
Maintainer or that I make a NMU upload?

Best wishes

An embarrassing mistake arising out of confusing the shape of
something rather rude with something perfectly ordinary when groping
for it in the darkness. A common example of a tegucigalpa is when a
woman pulls a packet of Tampax out of her bag and offers them around
under the impression that it is a carton of cigarettes.
